"One day you'll leave me. You don't want a girl with a rape story," I said as I desperately try to stop my sobs and hiccups. 
"You deserve someone who is prettier and more stable then me." 
"Mon ange ," he whispered to me lightly as he held my tear-stained face. I looked at him and my breath shortens as I met his intense look. "I don't want a girl who's perfect or prettier," he said, "because I just want you."  

After the incident three months ago and her parent's divorce, Reina Caverly finds a way to cope with life: cutting herself. Her mother a workaholic, her sister is an out of control teenage girl, and her dad disappeared from the face of the planet so what is there left to do? She can't even tell her two best friends, Joshua and Megan, about her problems.   

Then she meets young and mysterious Calvin Young about to commit suicide by jumping from her school's roof which surprised Reina. He's rich; he's handsome for his age and does well at school, so why? Why would someone who has everything want to kill himself ? Everyone has a dark secret, even Calvin who has the world. 
   
Can Reina and Calvin learn to speak up about their issues or lose to their depression?

You pretty much said this bit about the weather earlier. And then you end the paragraph with a completely different thought. 
                              
                              I'd say cut the weather talk all together.

Also, there's a lot of "since" in this last sentence. It makes it clumsy to read.

A large part of this chapter has revolved around discussions about meals.

Do we really need to know all of this right now? It seems like a lot of backstory that you're dumping on us right after spending a long time on backstory for everyone else. It's a little overwhelming and stalls the story out.

You already told us he was older by a year. But who is "us?" Her classmates? Or is she now speaking in plural third person?

Do guys really say "babe" anymore? I thought that died out in the 90s.
